Harrods remains at the height of British luxury retail, attracting millions...

Harrods remains at the height of British luxury retail, attracting millions of loyal customers

from across the globe with its unrivalled product selection, world-class service, innovative

retail theatre and historic setting.

The store was opened in 1849

by Charles Henry Harrod as an

expansion of his humble East End

grocery and tea business. Today, it is

one of the most distinguished names

in the world.

Seven floors and 330 departments

showcase the best of luxury

merchandise, from high-end fashion

and accessories to the finest

homewares and the latest technology.

There are 28 restaurants in-store;

we continue to enhance our portfolio

with Galvin Demoiselle, Bentley's

Sea Grill, and the institution that is

The Georgian.

Customers enjoy a wealth of exclusive

services, such as By Appointment

Personal Shopping and The

Penthouse, a private suite dedicated

to unsurpassed bespoke service in a

beautiful environment.

Other departments include the

Urban Retreat at Harrods spa, a

theatre ticket bureau, and The Studio,

the store's interior-design service.

Qatar Holding acquired the business

in 2010, and it continues to guide

- and invest strongly in - the store

according to its philosophy: Anything

is possible.

Harrods continuously seeks to

surpass the desires and expectations

of its customers, staying true to its

original motto: Omnia omnibus ubique

(everything for everyone, everywhere).

Harrods is located on Brompton

Road, near the Knightsbridge London

Underground station.

Ok. First of all I am not a shopaholic. But this place is amazing. I have never seen such a high attention to detail in the decor of a building. It is utterly elegant and beautiful. All of the items for sale are based on quality. Whether this is your destination or you have a few minutes. You must walk... More

Growing up Harrods was always considered "the" place to visit when in London. In days gone by I have visited and had samples from the food hall and perused this magnificent store. So it is with disappointment I don't give it 5 stars. It's not now the store I remember and loved. It was ridiculously busy which they obviously cannot... More

Enjoyed shopping at Harrods. If you love shopping (high end $$$) then this is your place. Love the Harrods gift shop and a must see, the Princess Diana Memorial.

It's a big department store. It looks nice and is a classical place. If you like shopping then I guess it will be interesting, but otherwise there's no reason to visit IMO.

A giant mall with endless food choices and shopping! There are several food halls for bread, chocolate, etc. But note that the restaurants charge high for meals. There are several floors of shopping as well.

Wish we had more time to explore Harrods, there's loads of floors and so many rooms! Staff give out maps by the escalators, and many (including me) still manage to get lost very very easily. Some floors you can bypass (as a tourist) as they are mostly show rooms for big money bedding, chandlers, carpets and crockery. There's a huge... More

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
